For this kind of massage, the therapist places warmed stones on certain areas of the body, such as acupressure points. The stones may be used as massage tools or be temporarily left in place. Used along with other massage techniques, hot stones can be quite soothing and relaxing as they transmit heat deep into the body.
Have you ever been to a county fair or music festival and envied the chair massages of others? Have you ever passed by an airport chair massage section? Maybe you work for a company that provides regular 15- to 20 minute massages. Chair massages can be done on-site. You'll sit in a specially designed, portable chair while fully dressed. These massages usually include a massage to your neck, shoulders and back as well as your hands.
Your massage therapist may play music during your massage or talk to you, but you can tell him or her if you prefer quiet.
